    Things don't happen in a vacuum do they? What did Israel do just wake up one day and say "Hey lets put a blockade on Gaza"? Of course not! In was in response to constant infiltrations of suicide bombers, rocket attacks etc., what would your response have been? It seems to me, it was a restrained response, one looking to avoid open conflict. What was the Gazan reaction? Unrelenting attacks against civilian targets, forcing entire towns to spend hours a day in bomb shelters. Isn't interesting that the Pal attacks were initiated during school hours and without regard to who the rockets killed. Since the rockets Hamas uses cannot be accurately targeted at military...as opposed to civilian... everyone fired is a war crime. So the question is: How many war crimes can Hamas(Palestinians)commit before Israel can respond? It's a simple question. What do you think the U.S. would do if terrorists began launching rocket attacks(from Canada) across the Detroit River into Michigan? Case Closed
